Join The Dots

When I saw the inspiration photo for The Play Date Cafe's new challenge, I was as much taken by all the white dots as by the colour scheme,

Grass ... Rose Petal ... Hibiscus

and suddenly I knew how I wanted to case Jen's card at Less Is More:

Here's a little close-up of my case.  I like how the white dots define the colours.

The image stamps are Paper Smooches Reflections (such a versatile set) and the current challenge at PaperSmoochesSPARKS is Picture Perfect using this image as inspiration:

So friends, that's your challenge--use this picture as your inspiration for your creation. Get inspired by the flowers, polka dots, cupcakes, or colors!!!  Follow it closely or use it loosely...just have fun! 

My interpretation is very loose - flowers!  And maybe dots, on a different scale.

And seeing as Michele of CAS-ual Fridays is still having her birthday bash, I'll add it to her many birthday cards.

Oh, and Addicted to CAS is still open, where the code word is Flower:


  1. This is simply lovely Shirley!
    Thanks so much
    "Less is More"

  2. Oh! I love this. I've had a dotty idea in my head for a while now, and this just made it PING! So pretty!

  3. In awe of so much challengeology, Shirley ... love the folk art look of these pretty, dotty-outlined flowers! Anita :)

  4. Wow - that is some pretty crazy perfect dotting happening here Shirley! Your poor eyes must have been seeing double...or triple!

    Love the clean and simple folk art feel - the kraft card stock is perfect for this look.

    Those dots though, have me shakin' my head and saying out loud "I cannot imagine doing all those dots by hand!"
